The evil witch Maleficent curses Princess Aurora to die on her 16th birthday. Thanks to Aurora's guardian fairies, she only falls into a deep sleep that can be ended with a kiss from her betrothed, Prince Philip. To prevent Phillip from rescuing Aurora, Maleficent kidnaps and imprisons him. The good fairies are the last hope to free Phillip so that he can awaken Aurora. ( )

With the help of three good fairies, Princess Aurora grows up safe and protected from the evil Maleficent. But everything changes when she meets Prince Phillip and falls in love. Disney Princess fans ages 2 to 5 will love this Little Golden Book retelling of Disney Sleeping Beauty, releasing as a Diamond Edition DVD and on Blu-ray in fall 2014! (amazon).

This is an awesome example of a traditional fantasy story. It has a variety of magical characters, a dramatic plot with a drastic climax and use of inflection in dialogue. From the beginning of the story readers are introduced to a number of magical characters such as the fairies that help raise Aurora and the dragon, these characters automatically catch a reader’s interest. Then I noticed the overly dramatic and classic plot conflict of a princess in dire need of someone to come save her; the classic story of a hero that battles evil. Finally the author chose to use interesting dialogue to bring the readers even more into the magical world of sleeping beauty. By having the fairies say things such as “If through this witch’s trick a spindle should your finger prick, not in death, but just in sleep,” the author uses rhythmic says like this to make the characters more magical. The choices that the author made combine to create a story which not only captivates readers but also conveys the message that true love conquers all. ( )

Summary: This book also tells about one of Disney Princes. In this story the princess is put under a spell in which she can't awake from. The only way the princess is awakened is if she is kissed by her true love. She is kissed and awakened and she falls in love and lives happily ever after.

I liked this book, it has great illustrations. It also tells you how the person you love can really save your life not only physically but emotionally.
